Dear Anon,

I am sorry you've had to endure all of this-- sounds like you're a very strong woman. Due to your previous history, there is no one better than your doctor for you to see about this.
Stomach pain does not necessarily mean that you have another infection or that the cancer has returned but it is an indication that you should either call or schedule an appointment with your Physician.

Please do so and keep us updated with your Health!

Wishing you the best,
